August 1941. “Conservation. Scrap iron and steel. An automobile graveyard outside Baltimore. Scrapped cars are collected in such yards in every state. Usable parts are stripped from the chassis and the remainder of the car is sent to scrap iron dealers for processing and shipment to steel mills.” Acetate negative by “Danish,” Office for Emergency Management.
Considering the age of the photo the quality is amazing, the car with what appears to be a greeter for the bank is a Lincoln Coupe from around 1922 and the car behind is a Locomobile of around the same vintage.
The tagline is “Drive Your Car To The Door” pretty advanced for the time!
